Fans speculated in November 2018 that Joey King and Jacob Elordi (@jacobelordi) had split up. The rumors began when Elordi revealed on his Instagram Stories at the time that he would be taking a break from social media.
Jacob then deactivated his Instagram account completely. Following that, King turned to Twitter with a cryptic message that appeared to be a dig at her co-star. "Thank God I have my dog, tho," she wrote on Twitter at the time. That's when the comments started pouring in. Fans flooded King's Instagram comments section with questions on whether or not she and Elordi were still together.
However, by August 2021, at the time The Kissing Booth 3 was released, it appeared like Elordi and King were back on good terms. To celebrate the final chapter of the franchise, Elordi shared a series of images with his co-stars, including King, on his Instagram Story.
Both Joey King and Jacob Elordi have moved on from their romance. While King is all set to get married to Steven Piet, Elordi is reportedly dating Olivia Jade Giannulli.
